Review: The Readymade Thief

The Readymade Thief The Readymade Thief by Augustus Rose
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a really fun read, fast-paced and not at all what I thought it would be when I started. I don't usually like author comparisons but this felt like a combination of Dan Brown and Cory Doctorow, with teen runaways, a secret society, mysteries in the art of Marchel Duchamp, urban explorers, drug culture, and hackers. As in most Dan Brown books, the culminating events feel a little far-fetched, but I liked the character of Lee and how she couldn't easily figure out who was lying, who was dangerous, and I was on her side from the second her friend sold her out.

The publisher provided an eARC of this title through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
